I commend the TikTok hecklers who bullied Bezos – Sadly, it’s the only way to hold the super-rich accountable for their actions

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has been filmed getting heckled in a TikTok clip that spread like wildfire across social media before being removed by the app for allegedly violating its policy on bullying. The person behind the camera asked, “Hey…

Disney’s LGBT Pride event ‘for kids’ is all about woke parents trying to be hip – but it could backfire bigtime

Just because parents want their offspring to be the world’s wokeist doesn’t mean it will be so. Plonking kids in front of a TV screen and demanding they enjoy a camp concert doesn’t mean they’ll grow up how their parents…
